The music of Dzelzs Vilks is heavy and melodious at the same time, borrowing elements from a wide variety of genres including rock, dark wave, synthpop, industrial music, and post-folk, but the band keep on searching for new expressions.
For the past years Dzelzs Vilks have been strongly inspired by Latvian folk poetry called dainas, creating a unique fusion of original melodies and dainas lyrics in their own songs. This has brought two albums to audiences: Vakara Zvaigzne (Evening Star, 2006) and Uijā Uijā Nikni Vilki (Uijā Uijā Fierce Wolves, 2008) – recognized as the Best Folk Music Album at Latvian Music Awards 2008.
Their recent 2015 release Perfekta Rītdiena (Perfect Tomorrow) is their 13th full-length album to date.
